The Garden of Eve by K L Going
Synopsis: Without Mom, there are no more bedtime stories, no more answers carried on the wind, and no more magic gardens. Evie doesn't believe in magic now. After all, if magic were real, her mom would be still alive.
But when Evie moves to Beaumont, New York, where her father has bought a withered apple orchard that the townspeople whisper is cursed, she learns about a lost girl, receives a mysterious seed, and meets a boy who claims to be dead.
Before long, Evie finds herself in the middle of a fairy tale. And this one is real.
My 2 cents: This was a good little read. I love children's books;they always seem to capture the imagination of the story really well. This was no exception. The story was great because it had a ghost, a curse, some fantasy, magic, and a mystery to solve. My kind of reading! Evie was a great character, and you really felt for the loss of her mom. All in all, a great read. I give it 4 stars!
